Dr. Johnston uses the age old method of story telling to talk about why women tend to get stuck in their preoccupations with food and/or body image. I found what she had to say was very relevant, though she is somewhat repetitive, particularly in the beginning chapters of the book. For me, the best part of the book was when she would use women's personal stories to illustrate her points. I really like that the book can be read as a whole, but that the chapters also stand on their own. Although the emphasis of this book is on disordered eating, I think the concepts in the book can be applied much more broadly.
